  • Wedding: October 2010

We want our guests to walk into our reception thinking they’ve walked into a lounge. The way we’re doing our reception as a strolling reception.  They can just go get food whenever they want, no assigned seating…and I can’t wait.

Other personal touches will be the candy bar favor, elements of Halloween throughout the reception, our pre-ceremony music and ceremony music, and Polish Krusciki and Italian Pizzelles dipped in chocolate (homemade) at our dessert table.

  • Wedding: December 2010

@zeynokiz: We are date twins!!! I am glad you mentioned the fact that our wedding date is the day before Mother’s Day. I have been racking my brain trying to figure out what to do as something special for the Moms attending.

Any ideas are welcome.

Another May 7 bride here!!! 🙂

I think the entire concept of our wedding will be different than any other wedding our family and friends have attended. The fact that it is a 3 day celebration and not just an evening affair was something very important to us. My fiance’ and I have been to many out of town weddings where we got to see the couple for 20 minutes. With ours, we knew we wanted to spend more than just an evening with those who meant the most to us. The affair will be casual, laid back, bright, colorful and fun, which is very much our personalities.

@da3lyn: You can do a table with picture frames or digital frames showing pictures of your Mom’s or guests who are mom’s, paying homage to them. Or if you are giving away your centerpieces at the end of the night, you can give it to the Mom at the table.

@zeynokiz: I like that show too, but I think what they mean in the ‘personal touches’ parts are things that are incorporated that they’ve never seen before more than anything else. Most weddings are pretty much the same and it becomes a challenge to come up with some things that haven’t been done. On one of the most recent shows, I remember the girl who actually won pointing out how much she did herself, implying that those who just bought it all and had the items placed there for them made them less personal. Since there is no magic wedding fairy, it still takes time to sort through the millions of ideas out there and find something unique,doesn’t it?

I think a wedding lacking in details is kind of bleh, but I don’t agree that if it isn’t all homemade it lacks character or charm. Adding great centerpieces or lighting, a fabulous cake design, non generic wedding food and the overall look and feel of the venue are what makes it all more personal to me. Those things reflect the couple’s personality more than anything else because those are the choices they made to celebrate their big day.
